Get one off a junkyard Subie, or contact an auto glass shop

Re: most affordable way to replace rear glass

I thought that the liftgate is unique on the saab vs. the subaru? is the glass the same?

Re: most affordable way to replace rear glass

most affordable way to replace it would be to remove unbroken glass, then put that same glass back in.  spider

Happy to help   wink

It's only unique in the way that the area around the taillights is different since the saab taillights are different. the rest of the tailgate is subaru

Glass has the radio antenna in it.  May not be the same for Subaru.  If I recall, they had a pull out antenna above the driver's door area.

arrow-up Only up to '03. When the body style switched to the 'blobeye', the antenna moved to the glass.
